IWATA, JAPAN – May 13, 2024 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. (Tokyo: 7272) announces its consolidated business results for the first three months of fiscal 2024.

From HIDAKA, Yoshihiro
President, Chief Executive Officer and Representative Director

In contrast to last year when outdoor recreation was booming, we had strong demand across almost all our businesses, and replenishing inventory was a priority, the business environment has heavily swung in the opposite direction and the first quarter of fiscal 2024 has been marked by concerns of an economic recession and the return of intense competition as market inventories have increased. Amidst these developments, our core business of motorcycles led the way, securing the Company higher revenue and profits.

Net income attributable to owners of parent was 56.0 billion yen (an increase of 6.3 billion yen or 12.7%).

For this first quarter consolidated accounting period, the U.S. dollar traded at 149 yen (a depreciation of 17 yen from the same period of the previous fiscal year) and the euro at 161 yen (a depreciation of 19 yen).

In the Company’s core business of motorcycles, the continued strong demand in India and Brazil saw higher overall unit sales, and with the higher prices per unit in these markets, revenues grew. For operating income, the effects of higher revenue in the motorcycle business and cost-cutting efforts were compounded by the positives of a weaker yen, and this led to…
